FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Christmas Activity: Idioms Scavenger Hunt”

by Games 4 Gains
3rd – 5th Grade

This Christmas Idioms Scavenger Hunt {FREE} makes practicing holiday-themed idioms fun! Included are 12 cards that require students to determine the meaning of an idiom in context. This is a perfect activity to use with the whole class or in small groups during the Christmas season!

As the teacher, you will place the cards in secret places all around the room. Students will hunt for a card and read the sentence (with an idiom) on that card. Then, students will hunt around the room trying to find the definition to the idiom they just read on a different card. When they find the card with that answer, they’ll read the sentence shown on that card and then go on a hunt again. Students will love moving around the room trying to find their next question card!

Included with this Christmas Idioms Scavenger Hunt:
• Instructions for setup and how to play
• 12 idioms scavenger hunt cards
• Answer sheets
• Answer key
